Just a little

There really isn't much going on here, just working on the same few projects. I added the Pomatomus sock last week and now that I've finally got the pattern figured out I'm just about to start the heel of the first sock.

I know it is pretty short but I'm making them sport length because that is what the recipient likes to wear. And because I'm really hating the yarn. It feels very rough and scratchy and the swatch I washed didn't soften up...so I'm unhappy with it.

I've been doing just a bit of other crafting this week as well. I saw these on another blog and just had to have one.

As knitters we always need to be able to jot down changes to our projects, ideas for new designs ...or heck the grocery list. These started out just like the blue one in the back of the photo and now I think they are destined to go to swap partners.

I also made a few scissor charms to take with me since I'm going to a scrapbook retreat. We'll see if the ladies there think they are as cute as I do.

Imbolc (mystery shawl 7) is growing, I'm working on clue 3 now but almost done. The larger the chart got was starting to mess with my eyes and I kept messing up but I think I finally found a way to keep my place. And I'm so proud that I can at least listen to podcasts while I work on it so it's not as much of a quiet knit anymore. Sometimes silence is deafening.

Well that's all for me for today. I promise I'll be posting again before I leave next week.

Hey there Caffeine Swap partner!

Just wanted to let you know that your package is almost ready to go but I'm headed out of town for the weekend and have a few little things to follow up so I might not get it in the mail until next week but don't panic! It'll be on it's way shortly :)
